I know this is just a picture of a bus, a number 26 bus but it is just one of many, many sentimental reminders of my past connection with the city.

I’m at EIFF in Edinburgh to take part in Doc Week – for interdoc and SDI. I’ll be pitching my film ORION in the Edinburgh Pitch tomorrow so have a day workshops ahead of tomorrow’s adrenalin fest.

My dad and most of his family are from Edinburgh and I would come for a visit with my Granma or Aunty Mary two or three times a year. It feels familiar and nostalgic but please don’t ask me where to get a drink – my knowledge is based on an almost Enid Blyton style fantasy that my Granma engineered for us.

A view of a city that never really existed and is always strange to encounter when I come up for the festival.
